About the Contest
The first round consists of written tests administered at eight
sites scattered throughout the state. (Old first round tests with answers are posted

The second round is a
"ciphering" (Jeopardy style) tournament held at the University
of North Alabama in Florence. (This tournament is by

A reminder from the Alabama Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ACTM):
The contest is a community effort run by the ACTM's State Mathematics Contest Committee, which is now chaired by Professor Wu. The committee continually seeks volunteers, who can contribute to the contest in numerous ways, including (but not limited to):
- the writing and production of the written tests and ciphering problems, and
- promotion and publicity of the contest.
If you or someone you know would be interested in helping the contest, please contact Professor Wu at 205-348-1963 or ZWu@gp.as.ua.edu
